I had more serious problems on my second machine. The installer uses

this from the DragonFly installer?

DragonFly (and FreeBSD) are very picky about the cabling you use for your hard drives. I can't say that it's completely correct since I had the same experience you did while I had no problems with Linux or Windows detecting my cabling correctly. But, I can tell you that when I swapped the hard drive cable out for another one, suddenly DragonFly detected the cable correctly and used UDMA100 (in my case).
